Hymn/Song Information

My former force of strength he hath




My former force of strength he hath
abated in the way,
And shorter he did cut my days,
thus I therefore did say,


My God, in midst of all my days
now take me not away;
Thy years endure eternally,
and never do decay:


Thou the foundations of the earth
before all time hast laid;
The heav'ns also, they are the work
which thy own hands have made:


They all shall perish and decay,
but thou remainest still;
And they shall all in time wax old
'en as a garment will:


Thou as a vesture shalt them change,
and changèd they shall be;
But thou dost still abide the same,
thy years do never flee.


The children of thy servants shall
continue and endure,
And in thy sight their happy seed
for ever shall stand sure.
